League is an annual collectors’ compendium of unique, thoughtful photographic art comprised primarily of work from the League of Landscape Photographers. Two key principles underpin the publication: contributors espouse a mindful, ethical code of behaviour in creating photographic work; and contributors wrestle with or promote dialogue about contemporary issues facing humans and the landscape.
League is not a conservation magazine, although environmental issues may be a thread weaving through a photographer’s work. It is also not a traditional landscape publication of beautiful, iconic scenery, although beauty may be a theme taken up and presented in new ways by an artist. Rather than offer up simple solutions to complex problems, League seeks to push further by encouraging photographers to think about and engage with intimate, local changes to the landscape around them. The photography featured in League is personal, passionate and sometimes puzzling, but it is always relevant and immediate.
League presents an alternate viewpoint – that photographers, and landscape photographers in particular, can channel their fascination with living things into topics for discussion, and that artists can be leaders in the pursuit of creative responses to the changes occurring across natural, cultural and political spectra.
